god ****ng dammit

i wrercked my car yesterday morning, on the way home from work. it was raining, and i was getting off the highway, there was a haverty's truck in front of me. i wasn't speeding or anything. basically, i had the car in neutral, holding the brake to stop, and my foot slipped off the brake and nailed the gas, since the car was in neutral, i didn't accelerate (thank god) but i nailed the back of the truck. it shattered my headlights, scraped up my bumper, knocked my turn signals out of the housings, mutilated my hood, and broke the header panel. the good news is that it won't show up on my insurance, becuz i'm not filing a claim, but this is gonna take nearly my whole savings to fix

can anyone with aftermarket parts on their cars hook me up with the stock pieces?

pretty please?

How much money do you have to spend, and what color is your car?

its not like our cars have sensors to tell whos in the car. in an accident everything goes off, if you could hold the passenger seatbelt that would lock too. if they put those sort of things in the cars and they failed, and in an accident an airbag didnt go off when it was supposed to, ford would have one hell on a lawsuit on their hands, and a big old recall.

sucks about your wreck dude, but in a Mustang, both bags go, and seat belts also lock. only in almost brand new high end cars do they have a sensor in the pass side that has a weight on it that the bag would go. ford is cheap and does not want to spend the money on the stuff like that in a mustng like wiz, the price would be about 1000-2000 more then it is now. trucks have a switch due to the child seat.
Quote:
Since the 1996 model year, the federal agency that regulates vehicle safety equipment has allowed airbag on-off switches to be placed in certain models of pickup trucks, sports cars and other vehicles. The agency, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), published a final rule permitting vehicle manufacturers to offer manual on-off switches for the passenger airbags for new vehicles with no rear seats or with rear seats that are too small to accommodate rear-facing infant restraints.

Understanding SMART Airbag Systems


RON MOORE
Firehouse.Com Contributor



SUBJECT:AirbagsTOPIC:SMART AirbagsOBJECTIVE:Understand how SMART airbag systems deploy airbags depending upon occupant position and crash information.TASK:Become familiar with the operation of SMART airbag technology to understand and anticipate unusual deployments of one or more airbags in a crash scenario.


The SMART airbag system on the BMW not only knew that both driver and front passenger were wearing their seatbelts, but it also realized what direction the crash was coming from and how severe it would be.


In its 1988 model year, Mercedes-Benz was first to introduce a dual-deployment threshold for its driver front airbag. The following year, a passenger front airbag was introduced with the same dual-deployment feature. Having the airbag deploy at higher or lower crash speeds is now common among automakers.

Besides knowing what speed the crash was occurring at, this early Mercedes system was smart enough to know if there were occupants in the front seats and if they had their seatbelts on at the moment of the crash. If the driver or front passenger were not wearing their seatbelt, for example, the smart airbag system would deploy their frontal airbag during a lower speed impact than if that same occupant were properly buckled up.


This SMART system only deployed the passenger front airbag to supplement the protection for the passenger. The driverís airbag remained loaded after the crash.


The smart ďbrainĒ of the Mercedes system can even figure out who needs an airbag the most or can determine if in fact the crash is minor enough that a belted occupant does not need an airbag to protect them. For example, if the driver of a Mercedes were belted in a low-speed crash and the passenger wasnít, potentially only the unbelted passengerís airbag would deploy. This was the beginning of what has now been termed ďSMARTĒ airbag technology.

In 1994, the strategy announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to address concerns about airbag deaths included a required phase-in of the next generation of SMART technology airbags by the 1999 model year. These systems sense the position or the weight of the passenger and adjust deployment to provide the best protection.


The frontal impact was severe enough to crumple the front engine compartment and dislodge the battery at the passenger side hood hinge.


What this means for responders is that we will encounter any possible combination of deployment of front airbags. With a standard airbag system, if the crash sensors deploy the driverís airbag, then the passengerís front airbag will deploy also. Not necessarily so with the SMART technology systems. Letís look at two recent case studies that vividly demonstrate how SMART airbag technology is changing what we will find when we arrive on-scene.

In our first case study, a brown BMW sedan ran a red light and struck another vehicle broadside. A third vehicle then crashed into the side of the BMW. The BMW was occupied by only the driver and he was wearing his seatbelt.


The secondary collision caused severe impact damage to the passengerís side, jamming the door.


The SMART airbag system of the BMW knew that no one was in the passengerís front seat. A weight sensitive grid installed in the cushion of the front seat weighs everyone who sits there. In this case, the seat detected that no one was in that riding position and remembered that at the moment of the crash. Notice that only the steering wheel airbag deployed. The passengerís front airbag is still loaded. There was no need for the bag to deploy so the SMART system just saved the insurance company some repair cost money.

Rescuers entering the vehicle and placing weight on the passenger seat cushion will not trip the sensor and deploy the airbag. That weight (40 pounds or more) had to be there at the moment of the collision to allow the crash signal to go to the frontal airbag.


The SMART airbag system knew the passengerís seat was empty and only deployed the airbag for the driver. The passenger front airbag remains loaded.


The second incident involving a red BMW was a little different. This vehicle had two front seat occupants; a driver and front seat passenger. Both were wearing their seatbelts. As the SMART airbag system in this BMW sensed and analyzed the impact that was occurring at the passengerís front corner, the system determined that the driver would be all right since he was buckled up. His airbag did not deploy.

The passenger however was closer to the point of impact. Vehicle speed was high enough and the energy of the impact was being recorded as potentially sufficient to cause injury to a front seat passenger. The airbag Ďbrainí decided that this occupant should receive the supplemental restraint protection of an airbag. Therefore only the passenger airbag deployed.

Please use these two examples to remind your responders that SMART airbag technology is like a roll of the dice. We wonít know what combination of airbags will deploy until we get to the crash and find out for ourselves. Scan the vehicle. Be alert for loaded airbags and be cautious!

Sweet, where are you getting the stock cobra hood, and let me know how much you paid for it. I'm looking for one, or a stalker hood.
